Swimming in the Adirondacks

With plenty of places to swim in the Adirondacks, come visit our hundreds of ponds and lakes and thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and see why the Adirondacks is nature's water park. Hike to a remote pond and make it your own, find rivers and streams where the rock is worn so smooth you can slide down it, or plan a day at one of our public beaches complete with designated swimming areas, life guards and a 360 Adirondack panoramic view. 

Beachin' It!

Stay the night a nearby hotel and check out our local restaurants - just remember to wait at least 30 minutes after eating before jumping in!
